Our friends at FightHub TV caught up with various boxers in the build up to Canelo vs. Lara to get predictions from the pros. Watch the video above (or click here if the embed does not work) to hear from a number of fighters including Paulie Malignaggi, Alfredo Angulo, Andre Ward, Shawn Porter, Andre Berto, and more. While Canelo seems to be the favorite, there are a lot of fighters who see a Lara win as a genuine possibility. Here are some highlights:

Paulie Malignaggi: It'll be interesting and it's hard to pick a winner. Both guys seemed ready today at the press conference, so I'm excited about the fight... I wouldn't be surprised if there was some kind of close decision where fans are split between who won and who lost and no one winds up happy.

Andre Ward: You've got two young guys, highly skilled, and they don't like each other, so it's going to be a good fight... Lara is a friend of mine and I support Lara, but it's a pick 'em fight. One minute you think maybe Canelo here, but maybe Lara here. This is the kind of fight you have to respect guys for stepping up and taking.
